Everyone loves water and gatorade but the real question is, which is a better choice for kids during a regular daily basis or even during sports. “Sports drinks” like gatorade and powerade are supposed to replenish electrolytes that are lost through sweat, but why do kids need to have 34 grams of sugar and a dose of chemical food dye in order to replenish their electrolytes after an hours worth of practice. After a game, the kids should have water to replenish what they have lost through sweat. In my opinion the kids should be able to choose what drink they want after a game or even practice because since they have been working hard, yes they are losing electrolytes, but water does not provide them back into the body afterwards like a gatorade
Your own culture can be a topic that is hard to grasp. It is much easier to see someone else’s culture because they are different from you. In the personal essay, “Ethnic Hash” explains, “Do I even have an ethnicity?” My culture, even though it may be hard to see in my own eyes can be represented by my passion for running. My sport influences the way I eat, dress, what I spend money on, and my friends along with the choices I make through everyday life.
Every year sport drink companies spend millions of dollars on advertising there drink they advertise what the drink can do and how it can help you stay awake during your day but what they advertise the most are the electrolytes they supply to your body. Electrolytes are minerals in your blood that you lose from sweat, they transfer energy through your body regulate fluid balance and transport nutrients they are very important to your health and help you overall with your day. In my project i am experimenting which gives you more of the needed electrolytes that help you stay awake.
I chose this topic because I have always been skeptical about the validity of the quantity of electrolytes said to be in sports drinks. Sports drinks have been recommended as a way to replace electrolytes lost during exercising. However, orange juice also has electrolytes and these are naturally occurring, not man made. Although water is also a liquid recommended for exercise, it is not used for strenuous exercise because it has no electrolytes. This was all proven during my experiment.
But that’s not all do you ever come in from recess after that intense game of foursquare and need something to drink. Your only options are white milk, chocolate milk, juice boxes, and a bottle of water. Water will hydrate you. Juice boxes will give you a bunch of sugar. White milk is ok. Your best option though would be chocolate milk because it has so much protein and repairs you sore achy muscles. Although most people drink water after sports Jason Karp said , “ It’s water but much much more!” This is important to know because if you think that chocolate milk is all sugar, you have to think again because it is really half water, half protein. Also chocolate milk is referred to professional athletes. Milk unleashed stated, “ Chocolate milk has been preferred more than sports drinks for Olympians and amateur athletes.” This just proves how much we need chocolate milk in our schools because if professional athletes have it so should
Gatorade and Powerade are both energy drinks made to do the same thing supply athletes with more electrolytes. Gatorade is the original sports drink made first in 1965 while Powerade was later made just to rival Gatorade in 1988. For many other reasons than just being original Gatorade is better than Powerade. Let’s get into more depth about the two now.
Gatorade and Powerade are sport drinks made for athletes to stay hydrated. Gatorade and Powerade have the same amount of sugar and carbohydrate content in it. Both drinks have a variety of flavour and mixtures to offer. In addition, both drinks contain vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes for better energy distribution. The results of this experiment will identify the better drink for endurance.
Did you know that Gatorade and other sports drinks contain electrolytes that can be used in a battery solution? These electrolytes are the same ones that replenish your body after exercise. Gatorade and other drinks have different electrolyte activity rates. That makes the battery either more or less powerful. A battery can be made with more electrolyte containing materials than you think. A battery can be made with anything that has electrolyte activity.
The recent trend of Americans carrying bottled water can be explained by its convenience, as it can be purchased in vending machines and grocery stores, and is a healthier choice than soda. In addition, carrying bottled water is a good idea to maintain one’s hydration throughout the day (“Tap Water or Bottled?,” 2006). Although dehydration, or loss of water from the body, is not a concern for many Americans, people who exercise without drinking, sick children and the elderly are susceptible to its effects. Affected individuals will experience thirst, headache, fatigue, and dizziness. In addition, if exercise is undertaken under conditions of dehydration a person may experience muscle cramp or ache (“The ‘8 glasses per day’ rule,” 2006).
There has been a discussion on whether sports drinks are better than water at replenishing lost electrolytes and fluids while exercising . You always hear in infomercials and magazines on how you have to drink plenty of water in order to continue to do exercise or a sport . Water only keeps you hydrated and replaces the water lost while sweating . Sports drinks on the other hand replace lost electrolytes , quench thirst , keep you hydrated and give you extra energy to help you continue exercising . Sports drinks are a better source of energy and a better way to replace lost fluids .
With the constantly increasing paces of everyday life the search for an energy source, capable of boosting the human body to new limits by extending its endurance, continues. In the recent years a specific product, called an energy drink, has received much publicity worldwide. The energy drink is a highly caffeinated stimulant that is able to rise the performance of the human body. Many people consider it as a refreshment after a hard day’s work. What’s more one of the most frequently used cases of energy drinks is in combination with alcohol during parties. However, the majority of consumers do not understand the way they work and often abuse with the consumption of the substance. Furthermore, a great amount of them are unaware of what effects can be caused on the human body.
Powerade will contain the most electrolytes as millions of Rands are spent on engineering these drinks to rehydrate athletes as effectively as possible.
Central Idea: Many people may take drinking water for granted, but keeping hydrated can have a huge impact on overall health. Despite how crucial it is that people drink enough water, a significant amount of people may be failing to drink recommended levels of fluids each day.
Introduction: In this lab, of water in a hydrate, or a substance whose crystalline structure is bound to water molecules by weak bonds, is determined by heating up a small sample of it. By heating, the water of hydration, or bound water, is removed, leaving only what is called an anhydrous compound. Based on the percent water in the hydrate, it can be classified as one of three types: BaCl2O ⋅ 2H20, with a percent water of about 14.57%, CuSO4 ⋅ 5H2O, which has about 36.0%, and CuCl2 ⋅5H20 (21.17%).
It is recommended that we drink at least eight 8 oz. glasses of water or half of your total body weight in fluid ounces of water per day. Did you know that if you do that consistently, you will greatly reduce your hunger urges? This will make your weight loss easier. Some people have an issue with drinking plain water so they don’t end up getting their recommended amount in every day. I have found that putting slices of various fruit in the water is a great way to flavor
